Every year on the last Monday of May, the nation pauses to honor our fallen. “The “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed in December 2000; which asks that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps,” according to Joshua Claybourn.
There were several respectful celebrations, parades, and ceremonies up and down the central east coast of Florida.
- Port St. Lucie: The Port St. Lucie Parks and Recreation Department will hold the city’s annual Memorial Day Service at 10 a.m., Monday, May 29th at Veterans Memorial Park. The ceremony is held each year to support U.S. military troops and to honor those who lost their lives defending American freedom.
- Martin County: The annual Memorial Day Parade will be held on Monday, May 29th at 10a in downtown Stuart, Florida. The Memorial Day Parade and ceremony is dedicated to the remembrance of the men and women who sacrificed their lives in defense of this great nation. The residents of Martin County take this moment to honor their lives and recognize the sacrifice service members made in all national conflicts of war, including WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf Wars, Afghanistan and Iraq wars.
- Palm Beach County: On Monday, May 29th there will be commemorative ceremony in the morning, and an evening Memorial Day concert at 7 p.m., at the Mizner Park Amphitheater. There will be a performance by the New Gardens Band.
- Fort Lauderdale: The Great American Beach Party. Get ready to kick off the summer with live music, vintage cars, unique art, outstanding entertainment, and fun in the sun for everyone! It’s all happening on Fort Lauderdale Beach at the City’s Great American Beach Party held on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at A1A and Las Olas Boulevard. Now in its eighth year, the free Great American Beach Party features a full day of exciting activities and entertainment for the entire family.
